With Team North America eliminated from the World Cup, the focus will shift back to the fact that Johnny Gaudreau still doesn't have a contract.
Maybe that fact will change rather quickly, but until it does Gaudreau probably won't report to training camp. Usually when a young player misses most or all of a team's camp because of ongoing contract negotiations it's a troubling sign for the regular season. After it might lead to them being behind the curve in terms of readiness come the season opener, but given that Gaudreau played in the World Cup that might be less of a factor. Sep 23 - 10:21 AM

Johnny Gaudreau scored the game-winning goal in Sunday's 4-1 win over Team Finland.

Team North America was dominant from beginning to end, as they used their speed to overwhelm the Finns. Jack Eichel opened the scoring just over five minutes into the game, but it was second period goals from Gaudreau, Jonathan Drouin and Nathan MacKinnon that blew the game open. Gaudreau also hit a goal post in the first period. He added three shots on goal and a hit in 14:07 of ice time. This type of performance should help him whenever contract negotiations with the Calgary Flames resume.

Still without a contract, Johnny Gaudreau is looking forward to the distraction of the World Cup.

Gaudreau is representing Team North America and did well in exhibition play with three goals and five points in three contests. Based on a Calgary Sun report from about a week ago, Gaudreau is seeking something in the $8 million annually range while the Flames are about $1.5 million below that. While the fact that he's still a restricted free agent becomes more of a concern with every passing day, we still expect the Flames and Gaudreau to agree to terms before the season opener.

The Flames and Johnny Gaudreau are reportedly $1.5 million apart in contract talks.

Sources say Gaudreau's camp is seeking something in the $8-million range while the Flames are offering a deal between Sean Monahan's $6.375 million annual average value and Mark Giordano's team-high $6.75 million AAV. Calgary is taking more of a market value stance and they could end up getting what they want because Gaudreau is a restricted free agent with just two full years of NHL experience.

Johnny Gaudreau isn't interested in negotiating his new contract until the World Cup of Hockey is over.

He has already informed his agent of his decision and he feels comfortable playing in the tournament under the insurance that the NHL and NHLPA are providing. "I kind of just go into it as if I do have a contract," said Gaudreau. "I was really looking forward to this tournament. I was excited when I found out I was on the team. I think whether I have a contract or not, I was going to play in it. I'm excited to be here." Gaudreau has been skating alongside Jack Eichel and Brandon Saad during Team North America practices.

The Calgary Flames are still working on re-signing Johnny Gaudreau.

Calgary locked up Sean Monahan on Friday and they'll shift their attention back to signing Gaudreau now. "There’s some uniqueness when you have two young players like this, relatively same age, coming out at the same time," Flames GM Brad Treliving said. "Is there some uniqueness? Sure there is. Does one impact the other? It’s like we talked about earlier, there’s a market place. … We’ll continue to work away. … That’s all you do. You pick away at it every little day. You try to find common ground."

Even though he hasn't signed a new contract, Johnny Gaudreau is planning on playing in the upcoming World Cup of Hockey.

This is according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. Gaudreau should be set to cash in big on his next contract after two fantastic seasons with the Flames. The 23-year-old had 30 goals and 78 points in 79 games in 2015-16. He'll be suiting up for Team North America (the young guns) during the World Cup. Gaudreau has apparently told the Flames that he isn't interesting in negotiating during the tournament.

Johnny Gaudreau hasn't been involved in the negotiation process, but he is hoping to have a contract worked out soon.

He is leaving the work to his agent, Lewis Gross. "Honestly, I'm not even involved," Gaudreau said. "I try to stay out of it as much as possible. I don't like getting different numbers in my head. Hoping for this, hoping for that, how many years ... it's just, I don't really enjoy that stuff. Whatever my agent thinks is best for me is what I'm going to do. He does a really good job with his players, so I have all the faith in him that he'll get something done." Gaudreau could end up getting a deal similar to ones that Filip Forsberg, Mark Scheifele and Brandon Saad received this off-season.

Flames GM Brad Treliving didn't have an update to provide on new contracts for restricted free agents Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan.

He was asked about Calgary's top offensive duo when netminder Brian Elliott was introduced to the media on Wednesday. "No real update there," said Treliving. "We'll continue to work away at it. We wanted to focus (Wednesday) on Brian and (Elliott's wife) Amanda and welcome them to Calgary. But we'll continue to work away at it." Talks have been ongoing during the off-season, with both players looking for long-term deals.

Johnny Gaudreau received a qualifying offer from the Calgary Flames Monday.

The star left winger was among four players to receive qualifying offers from the Flames. Sean Monahan, Freddie Hamilton and Tyler Wotherspoon were the others. The Flames had till 5 p.m. ET Monday to retain the rights of all four players or they could have become restricted free agents July 1. Gaudreau, 22, scored 30 goals and had 78 points in 79 games last season. Monahan, 21, scored 27 goals and 63 points in 81 games.

The Calgary Flames are confident that they'll be able to sign potential restricted free agents Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan.

"We continue to work away at it," said general manager Brad Treliving. "As everybody knows, those are two top young players for us that need new contracts. Sometimes these take a little bit of time. This is not unusual, that we're sitting here at this time and they're not done. … We'll continue to bang away at it. We've got to get to something that makes sense for them and for us. … I have every confidence that we will." Neither player will come cheap. Gaudreau, 22, put up 30 goals and 78 points in 79 games last season, while Monahan, 21, had 27 goals and 63 points in 81 games. The Flames have over $20.7 million in cap space this off-season. They should be able to lock both players up with ease.

Flames general manager Brad Treliving is not in a rush to name a coach.

Even as the pool shrinks, Treliving is looking for the right match. "It’s no different than building a team," Treliving said. "It takes time. It’s personal fit. You’re trying to find a match and chemistry." Even if he’s not in a rush, Treliving realizes he can’t wait that long, either.

Johnny Gaudreau would like to improve defensively in 2016-17.

"I think, personally, be better in the defensive zone," Gaudreau said, when asked where he could demand more from himself. "There are a lot of guys, including myself, we have to help our goaltenders out a little bit more." The Flames could certainly use help in that regard as the team allowed more goals than any other in 2015-16. Gaudreau had a great campaign offensively with 30 goals and 78 points in 79 games.
